in berman we trust
Yesterday, while plugging for tonight’s Monday Night Football tilt between the Packers and Vikings, Chris Berman unleashed his nickname for came-out-of-nowhere Packers RB Samkon Gado: Samkon “In Gado We Trust”.

Not bad, but certainly not a Berman best. Personally, I’d have gone with: Samkon “In-A-Gado-Da-Vida”. I’d think an Iron Butterfly reference would have been right up Berman’s alley.

Gado’s Nigerian heritage, and his position at running back, naturally prompts the question: Whatever happened to Christian Okoye, “The Nigerian Nightmare”?

    Loved watching Okoye play smash mouth football. We used to joke during the games that KC didn’t even need to huddle, just go to the line, yell out “OKOYE UP THE MIDDLE”, and then let him rumble for 6 yards.
